New first-semester international students are required to pay for a minimum of 12 credits at the time of acceptance.
If you withdraw completely a minimum of five business days (Monday to Friday) prior to the first day of a semester, you will receive a 50% refund of tuition fees.
Notification of withdrawal must be submitted in writing (letter or fax) to Douglas College International and must be received by Douglas College by the stated deadline.
If you withdraw completely less than five business days (Monday to Friday) prior to the first day of a semester or after the start of a semester, you will receive no refund.
If you withdraw completely due to exceptional circumstances (e.g. failure to obtain a Study Permit), you may submit a petition to the Registrar's Office for consideration of a full refund (less a $250 administrative fee). You will be required to provide documentation to support your claim. You should contact Douglas College International for assistance in this matter.
If you withdraw from some, but not all, courses either prior to the start of a semester or after the start of the semester, you will receive no refund, as the tuition fees for the first 12 credits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Payments can be made on-line by following the Credit Card Payment links on the Account Summary and Account Summary by Term pages.
Although partial payments can be made over the web, payment in full is due according Fee Payment Deadlines for international students.
